Pre-Surgical Pain Consultation Service
With a referral from your surgeon, the pain specialists at Pacific Pain & Wellness Group will meet with patients before the surgery to discuss and develop a comprehensive Pain Management plan before, during and after surgery. The plan will include reducing current pain medication, recommendations for preemptive pain medications before and during surgery, and Pain Management after surgery. We coordinate with the surgical and anesthesia teams, the use of regional and epidural anesthetic techniques that can be continued post-operatively. After surgery the Inpatient Pain Service will continue to assist with the patient’s Pain Management needs during the hospital stay and help prepare for discharge.
Your patient specialists at the Pacific Pain & Wellness Group include double board certified pain specialist and anesthesiologist Dr. Kartik Ananth. The goals of our pre-surgical pain consultation are:
- Help patients recover from surgery as comfortably and quickly as possible
- Assist surgeons in managing post-operative pain more effectively and safely
- Minimize the side effects of pain medicines
- Reduce the chances of developing post-surgery chronic pain
